A Little Help For Typhoon Yolanda's Victims
Although I get attached to my things, it would be a lot better if someone will use and benefit them, rather than being stocked uselessly in our closet...
As my wife brought out the things in our closet, she asked me what were the things I'm no longer wearing. She told me that it will be donated to the Yolanda victims... and there were actually a couple that I kept being my past faves. But since fashion changed and new ones came, I don't use them anymore. Though I put sentiments on things, it's time to let go... after all, it was intended to help others in need.
And just today, we were assigned by our company to pack relief goods. Every employee had a shift to follow. It was tiring in my part since I just traveled more or less forty kilometers from my assignment to our office. But the thought that what we were doing was for the those badly affected by the typhoon, just made me pumped up. Adrenaline rushed that we all did the works one after the other. You could really feel the people enthusiasm to help, that the tasks were finished even before the estimated time. Felt proud of my company for all the help it send.
Now, I just fervently hope that all the donations will be received by those intended... not to be used by those with political motives... and that our government will do its best to bring it to them the soonest possible, distribute fairly and with the attitude that you are in service for your country. There is nothing impossible with our Lord, and so I pray. Yahweh bless.
